This week’s episode discusses life expectancy in China, Ireland’s abortion vote, US unemployment and how Johnson and Johnson put profits before public health. We also look at the success of die-ins at Publix grocery stores, union backlash against French President Emmanuel Macron, how the Poor People’s Campaign exposes poverty in the US and the super-rich spending wildly. Dr. Harriet Fraad also joins the episode to discuss the #MeToo movement and its economic and social effects.
